The Men in Blue wore camouflaged military caps in the Ranchi ODI against Australia. Their decision left the cricketing fraternity in two halves. While many people have supported India’s act, the ministers of Pakistan were clearly displeased by it.
PCB chief Ehsan Mani said that they have strongly asked ICC to take action against BCCI. Meanwhile Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi was the recent member to voice his opinions on it.
Shahid is currently plying his trade for Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League. After an impressive win over the Lahore Qalandars on Monday, Afridi attended a press conference.
There one of the journalists asked him about his opinion on Team India wearing military caps to show their respect to Pulwama victims. Team manager Nadeem Khan instantly intervened. He told the journalists to ask only cricket-related questions.
But in midst of it, Afridi came up with a hilarious reply. The all-rounder with a big smile said, “Caps pehni to utar bi deen (They wore but took it off as well)”

ICC quashes PCB’s hopes
Meanwhile ICC has dashed PCB’s hopes of making India pay for wearing the camouflaged caps. They said that before taking the decision, BCCI had asked permission from the ICC.
“The BCCI sought permission from the ICC to wear the caps as part of a fundraising drive and in memory of fallen soldiers who have died, which was granted,” said ICC spokeswoman Claire Furlong.
